"When you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it; but when you cannot express it in numbers, your knowledge is of a meagre and unsatisfactory kind; it may be the beginning of knowledge, but you have scarcely, in your thoughts, advanced to the stage of science, whatever the matter may be."
Lord Kelvin

DATA PUBLICATION FOR EU CITIZENS – 2017/1

May 10th 2017

Corruption risk demonstrates a deterioration in public spending. Transparency and publishing the list of tenders with highest corruption risks is a tool to fight against future corrupt activities.

The data reported/published here by CRCB aim to provide significant information by sharing all important elementary data of tenders with highest corruption risks in Hungary for the period 2010-2016 in a well-structured format. The source of information was the Hungarian government website (http://www.kozbeszerzes.hu/), though it does not allow downloading elementary data with a simple, structured format (xlsx or csv). Therefore, this task was carried out by CRCB, a non-profit, non-partisan research institution. We downloaded, restructured and presented information on 62,879 Hungarian tenders.

The cost of data downloading, restructuring and data sharing was 1200 Euros paid by the CRCB.
